A Letter from the British Prime Minister

Date: 2007

From: Tony Blair, Prime Minister of the United Kingdom

Subject: Britney Spears

To the US media;

It has come to my attention that the US celebrity media commonly uses the nickname "Brit" for Britney Spears. This letter is to request that you not refer to Ms. Spears by this name.

Historically by convention the term 'Brit' describes to a person who is a British subject. Often a nickname given to a British person living abroad by the locals.

By calling Ms. Spears "Brit", you may lead some people to believe that she is British. This would be a very unfortunate misunderstanding. Ms. Spears is certainly not British, and we wouldn't want anyone to mistakenly get that impression.

To protect the reputation of Great Britain and British subjects worldwide, please do not refer to Britney Spears as Brit.


Tony Blair
